With a background of advertising and interior design, I provide a unique perspective on realestate that many cannot. For years I have helped clients sell high end homes or find "diamonds in the rough"
Existing and New Construction Homes
Real Estate has been my passion for years. For many it is a job...for me, it is my calling. Growing up I remember making doll houses out of shoe boxes and stacking them up to make rooms in a house. It makes perfect sense that I would take so much enjoyment out of what I do today.
Just to give you an idea of my backround; I have 10 years experience in advertising and several years of interior design and space planning as well. I like to buy homes that need help in nice areas and renovate them. (Although my family doesn't think it is so much fun living there during the process).
With my backround and contacts in the trades I have been able to assist clients both selling or purchasing a home. Sometimes a bit of work is needed to get a home ready to go on the market and I can help with that. As a buyer, have you ever found a home that you absolutely love...except for one thing? I have helped many change "that one thing" so they can have the home of their dreams.
If you have ever tried to look for a new construction home on your own, you know how overwhelming it can be. There are so many builders out there so who should you pick? Did you know that many of the lots in developments are available on the builders lot exchange? I may be able to help you find a builder you really love to put a home on a lot you really love. You have choices. It is best to have your own representation when embarking on new construction. If you are looking for new construction, I can assist you with the process. Many new developments are not in the RMLS, but I keep up with the ever changing construction market.
It has often been noted that relocating to a new community is the number 3 stress-producing event in your life. Leaving behind trusted friends and family, doctors, school, jobs, etc., and moving into a world of unknowns is an adventure - but can be scary and full of tension. And choosing a home in the new city is an important step - as important as choosing the Realtor who is most qualified to assist you.
My expertise as a Realtor specializing in relocations means I can give you valuable information about the area, schools, taxes, local housing values and trends. I understand that your most important need initially is information gathering. I spend time doing a lifestyle and needs analysis for my relocation clients which provides information to help with the home search. Then I will give you detailed information on neighborhoods, amenities, schools, public transportation, and local housing prices.
I will look ONLY for homes that fit your needs and lifestyle. You can be assured that when you make the trip to do your home tours you won't be wasting your time with homes that don't fit your criteria. I sets up your home tour trips to be a very productive time for you. And if you are ready to make an offer on a home I have inspectors and lenders on call and waiting to help.
From your initial consultation to the closing, I will be there to help make your relocation as stress free as possible.
Loni Lowe provided excellent service to us as both our buying and selling agent. She showed us many homes that met our requirements. She arranged for listings to be emailed to us as they became available with our desired floor plan and within our price range. This allowed us to view our current home the moment the price had dropped. When we made a decision to make an offer, Loni came over to our home immediately with the paperwork and helped us to quickly bring our negotiations to a close.
Since we wanted to buy the house non-contingent, she helped us to sell our home at a slow time of year through multiple open houses and mailings.
We would recommend Loni to anyone looking for an agent in the Twin Cities!

I don't know where to begin in my thanks to you. You've been fantastic throughout our entire process of purchasing a home.
I'll be forever grateful for your patience, understanding, and kindness.
Moving such a great distance is really difficult, but you made it easier than I could have imagined.
Please use me for a reference and know - you're my agent FOR LIFE!

Selling and buying a home involves making difficult decisions and can be very stressful.
Loni Lowe was dedicated, hard working, attentive to detail, and provided us with quality service during the entire process. She was invaluable.
The marketing of our home for sale was top notch - very professional. Her knowledge and experience in the market were evident when we were building our new home. She suggested various options to the floor plans, for a look we preferred. Working with her was a pleasant experience.
Thanks again, Loni!
Tom & Diane S.
Thank you once again for the great customer service! You did such a wonderful job representing us in our sale and purchase last time, that there was no question about who would represent us this time around.
We so appreciate all the times that you went above and beyond the typical realtor services in order to get us settled in our new home. You were able to get our home sold quickly, even when neighboring properties were lingering on the market. Then you worked tirelessly to help us find our new home. I can't even count the number of properties that we looked at! And yet you were always able to accommodate our schedules and happy to show us a variety of homes. Thank you for being so accessible and immediately available.
I feel confident that we would not have found our house or closed on time if it wasn't for your dedication and hard work. Please feel free to use us as a referral for prospective clients.

Hi Jill (Relocation Company):
First, thank you for being willing to jump in so quickly to help me look for a house in St. Paul this past weekend. I appreciate your willingness to be so helpful on such short notice.
Second, I want to officially and enthusiastically recommend Loni Lowe as a real estate agent. She was truly outstanding. She, too, was willing to jump on my case with only days notice and was completely prepared. She sent me 26 listings the same day she got my name and number. She helped me narrow the list down as I described what I wanted.
We had tons of phone and email contact before I even stepped foot in town. Because of her legwork and preparation, my mother and I were able to drive around and look at our top 6 houses the night we got into town, so the next day we knew ahead of time what we wanted to see and what we didn't need to see.
We found a really great house and that's when Loni really showed her expertise. She guided me every step of the way, with gentle, reasonable suggestions, always respectful of my wants and needs. I loved how she was able to keep a calm and professional composure even in the most stressful situations. She has a great way about her. She helped me through the whole process - right down to a very successful offer negotiation.
Since I am out of town for the remainder of escrow, Loni has of course agreed to be my eyes and ears as the deal moves forward.
Loni is a great agent and I hope you continue to share her with as many of your clients as she can handle!
I look forward to continuing to work with you as the move progresses.
